Privacy Policy

This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) explains how Comparrot LLC (“Comparrot” or “we”) collects and processes information from members and users of the website, software applications, and other online services we provide (collectively “Comparrot’s products”). Comparrot’s products include, but are not limited to, the Comparrot extension for web browsers (the “Extension”) and the website located at www.comparrot.io (the “Website”).

As users of the internet, we care about privacy just like you do. And as fellow human beings, we think you deserve to know exactly what you can expect from your Comparrot experience. Before you read our privacy policy, we’d first like to tell you how we think about privacy in simple terms.

We do not sell your personal information. Ever.

Comparrot works by finding you the best deals. When you buy something with a Comparrot offer, the store sometimes pays us a fee. That’s how we make money. We do not need to (or want to) sell your information.

So how do we use your data? First and foremost, we analyze some information on the retail website you’re on so that we can find the best coupons for that site or product. Also, we collect limited shopping data to support the Comparrot community. That means Comparrot members share real-time information about deals, prices, and products with the rest of the community to help everyone save time and money.

Want to see when a product you’re interested in goes on sale? Another Comparrot member is helping us update the price right now. When shoppers hunt for deals together, rather than on their own, everyone saves time and money.

Our stance on privacy is simple: We will be transparent with what data we collect and how we use it to save you time and money, and you can decide if you’re good with that. If we ever need additional personal information for a specific reason, we will tell you and ask for your permission. Also, to the extent that Comparrot has links to other websites (like retailers), please note that we do not own, operate, or control them, and they have their own controlling privacy policies that you should review.

If this sounds fair, then let’s start shopping smarter, together.

P.S. If you have any questions or comments, just email us at privacy@comparrot.io

In order to provide best possible service to all our users, Comparrot collects information that you share directly with us. You can also set up your profile with your name and other info for a more personalized experience.

When you become a member of Comparrot, you share a limited amount of information during the registration process, optionally including your name, email address, member password and other registration information to personalize your profile.

If you choose to link a social media profile (like Facebook) at sign-in, Comparrot will store this information. Linking your social media profile grants Comparrot access to the profile, but only as allowed by your permission settings, that platform’s terms of service, and this Privacy Policy. We will NOT track any of your social media activity, and we cannot post anything on your behalf.

Comparrot does not track your search engine history, emails, or your browsing on any site that is not a retail website (a site where you can shop and make a purchase). When you are on a pre-approved retail site, to help you save money, Comparrot will collect information about that site. We may also collect information about pricing and availability of items, which we can share with the rest of the Comparrot community.

We know how important your personal data is to you, so we will never sell it. We’ll only share it with your consent or in ways you’d expect (as we explain here). That means we will share your data if needed to complete your purchase, with businesses who help us operate Comparrot, or if we are legally required to do so.

We may share information with our service providers (businesses that work for and with us) for the purpose of running Comparrot and fulfilling our commitments to you. These include businesses that perform services on our behalf, including to help us maintain our products, provide support for legal, banking, security protection, payment processing, our own marketing, and customer service. Please know that when we share information with our service providers, it’s for the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy and not for their independent use.

We may also share information in the following cases:

  • with your express consent;
  • in an aggregate or anonymized format that does not identify any specific person;
  • as required by law, or to comply or respond to a valid government request;
  • when we believe in good faith that it’s necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, or investigate fraud; and
  • with a buyer or successor if Comparrot is involved in a merger, acquisition, or similar corporate transaction. If that happens, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on the Website of any change in ownership, as well as any choices you will have as a result.

The security of your information is important to us. We have a team dedicated to protecting your information and have put in place physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards.

These measures include limiting access, using encryption, testing for vulnerabilities, advanced malware detection, employing pseudonymization and anonymization techniques, and more.

Though we hate to say it, despite our efforts, we can’t guarantee that user information will not be accessed, viewed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed as a result of a breach of any of our safeguards. You provide us with information at your own risk.

Comparrot only retains information about you as long as you keep using the Comparrot Services. We’ll also keep information if we need it to meet our legal obligations and to defend against legal claims.

Like most other online services, Comparrot uses cookies, pixel tags, web beacons, and other markers (we’ll just call them “cookies”) to collect some of the data discussed in this Privacy Policy. These help us operate our products, analyze engagement and usage, and provide a relevant and personalized shopping experience. See below to learn how you can manage your cookie preferences.

Some cookies can be temporary (“session cookies” like those used for navigating your browser) and disappear once you close it. Others last longer (“persistent cookies,” like when you ask a site to remember your login) and are saved to your computer until you delete them.

Our cookies serve several important functions:

  • Operations: These are cookies that we need to make the Comparrot services work, and include remembering your login credentials and entries into a form, adding items to a shopping cart, navigation, and standard tech checks like load balancing or javascript checks.
  • Analytics: These types of cookies help Comparrot monitor the traffic and activity on our site, and to coordinate our own marketing campaigns. While they do not identify you specifically, they may be indirectly linked to your unique user ID. We aggregate and anonymize this data to help us detect fraud, understand trends, broad demographic data, and the general operation of our site.
  • Attribution: We use third-party pixels on our landing page to tell our advertising partners that someone found Comparrot through one of their ads. In addition, third-party affiliates may use cookies on our behalf, so that Comparrot can get a commission from a merchant when you make a purchase. In both these cases, Comparrot does not reveal any information that can be used to identify you.

If you want to disable cookies entirely, your browser or mobile device might have an option to do that. For more information, including instructions on disabling cookies, please visit: www.allaboutcookies.org

We’ve made it easy to opt out of Comparrot’s products at any time.

You can always adjust your personal settings regarding what information you share and how Comparrot communicates with you by going to your account page and clicking on the “personalize” or “emails” headings. Please note that limiting the information you offer to provide may impact Comparrot’s ability to provide certain deals and products to you.

If you want to stop using Comparrot, we have instructions on how to uninstall the Extension on our Website and if you have any issues you can contact our support team for assistance by sending an email to info@comparrot.io.

If you would like to delete your profile or personal information, you can always ask us by emailing privacy@comparrot.io. We will delete any personal information we have, though we may still store some data in an aggregated and anonymized format that doesn’t identify you and can’t be attributed to you (or if we’re legally required).

We created Comparrot for the exclusive use of adults (18 and older). We don’t knowingly collect or solicit personal information from children. If you are a child under 18, please do not attempt to register for Comparrot’s products or send any personal information to us.

If we learn we have collected personal information from someone under 18, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you are a parent or guardian of a child who you think may have given us some personal information or posted information on any public portion of Comparrot’s products, please let us know at privacy@comparrot.io. We’ll help you remove it.

If you have any questions about our privacy policies and practice, please contact us at privacy@comparrot.io.
